It has been over one month since the Astros cheating scandal report was released by Major League Baseball, and we still have questions.

New reports claim that the front office laid the groundwork of the scandal despite initial belief that this entire situation was player-driven.

An intern from a few years ago, now a full-time employee with Houston, presented a way to steal signs in real time, an application called “codebreaker.”

The Astros used this to gather data and decipher what pitches were being thrown. They would relay the messages to the batters with base runners or by banging on trash cans.

The other rumor about the scandal is that the players wore buzzers under their jerseys, something that was not revealed through the investigations.

In an interview with Tom Verducci, recently fired Astros Manager AJ Hinch dodged the question by saying the commissioner’s investigation didn’t find anything along those lines.
